    OMG – best post EVAR.

    I love reading you and this one, top of the list.
    laughed out loud several times. Your words are so

    LOVE IT!!! GO NUMBER 26!

    You need to teach us that Korean trick!

  • Katie

    Okay, so you need to teach us how to say Hello in Korean. PLEASE. Because I know those ladies at the nail place are so talking shit about my feet. They always talk in this hushed voice, so that you think they are talking to themselves. And then some lady across the room starts talking back to her in her hushed voice, muttering some Korean response. They are like aliens, or something, those Korean nail ladies.

    Is it that odd for a four month old to flip over from back to stomach? Still – Katey is definitely screwed. That kid is going to be mobile and soon!

    Go, Lily, go!!!

  • Hoso

    Heather,

    You had me cracking up here. So funny…

    Is “Hello?” on the phone same as “Hello” when you greet somebody in person? If so, it’s “Un yon hasse yo”. Is that right?

    That and “I love you” are the only Korean words I know.

    It’s not a classic Depp/Stroganoff tale, but sort of cute anyway.

  • Anonymous

    Screwed is definitely right!

    My baby girl started flipping over at about 4 months. Her twin brother could rollover around the same time, but for some reason chose not to make it part of his daily routine (Thank you son).

    Today, they are 6 months. She’s moving backwards as smooth and as quick as Michael Jackson’s moonwalk. She’s also decided to start propelling herself forward (face first). I know it’s progress, however, if you add that to the fact that her brother has now decided to show off how well he can flip over and over, leads to a very SCREWED mommy.

    Totally agree with 187. I’m saying this as someone who’s loved your site for years, too…but I wish you’d approached this all a little differently–the situation, as well as your tone in this post.

    I’m not thrilled that a lot of the commenters seem to think it’s the BEST THING EVAR OMG that you threw around one simple Korean phrase and now want to go throw around phrases like this themselves to make them feel all trendy and awesome (not to mention, just assuming that the Asian ladies working at their local salons/etc. all speak Korean…). It smacks of…I don’t even know what, but I don’t like it. Everyone needs to hang out in more diverse crowds, because this trend of co-opting random bits of other cultures for the sake of novelty isn’t cool.

    Seriously, I am a big fan of your site and a big supporter of you. But please be careful with how you handle these types of situations–you do have power, and I’d really appreciate it if you don’t perpetuate racial insensitivity, no matter how subtle or seemingly inconsequential, because it all can have a negative impact.

    S.C.R.E.W.E.D. Speaking from experience. My 2nd just turned 10m yesterday and started WALKING a few weeks ago. it went like this:
    4m rolled over (YEAH smart baby)
    5m sat up (no worries her big sis sat early too but didn’t walk until 12m)
    6m army crawled (huh, that’s strange)
    7m full fledged crawling (this doesn’t seem right)
    8m attempting stairs 3 at a time (lock her up)
    9m walking (AHHHHHHH)
    10m – unknown HEAVEN HELP US!!!!

    Here is a completely unscientific comment, so take it for what it’s worth:

    I really think that shorter, chubbier babies advance more quickly in learning new physical things. I have a friend whose daughter (who is wonderfully chubby and on the short side) is 5 days younger than my son (very, very long and pretty thin), but was rolling over, standing, crawling, and walking months earlier than our son.

    I’ve seen similar things in a few other babies.

    Maybe it’s that they have stronger muscles needed to move the extra weight. Maybe it’s a lower center of gravity. Who knows?

    So with my subject population of about 5 babies, I can confidently say that my hypothesis is completely correct.

  • http://elegraph.blogspot.com kg – elegraph

    Love the kewpie hair!

    Oh, yes… and the rolling over… it’s scary when it becomes a series of rolls that takes her from the little activity mat to, say, under the sofa or whatever. Oh, how we parents know that hitting milestones is a double-edged sword… congrats to her, though… that is one precious little girl.

    Kam-sa ham-ni-da (I think that’s ‘thank you’ in Korean? I’m Korean, but in ethnicity only… I can speak more Spanish and Japanese than Korean!!).

  • http://daddyscratches.com Daddy Scratches

    If there’s one thing I miss about the “baby” stage (and there isn’t much I do, believe me) … it’s that they stay where you put them down. Mobility creates problems.

    As for the “sleep when the baby sleeps” thing? Yeah, the best advise I can give new parents is: throw away all those advise books. They’re all bullshit if the person who wrote it doesn’t know you and your kid personally.

  • http://humanbeingblog.com Lynn @ human, being

    My daughter started crawling at 5.5 months and started walking on her 10 month birthday. And gave up napping completely when she was 18 months old. So yeah, screwed is the operative word.

  • Katie Kat

    I swear Heather, you have (if this is even possible) gotten even funnier since having Marlo! I always love reading your blog (no matter the subject or tone), but these entries have truly made me laugh out loud. Maybe it’s the loss of sleep on your part. Or the tequilla at 10am, I’m not sure. I would TOTALLY move to Utah and stalk you (and Katey because she sounds like the bee’s knees), but I lived in Arizona for 10 years and I have a horrible reaction to Mormons en masse. My eyes roll back in my head and I need to drink pop and flail about saying “MAGIC ROCKS? IN A HAT? SERIOUSLY???” and “MAGIC UNDERWEAR – ARE YOU BAT SHIT?”

    But anyway. Lily’s hair is beyond kewpie and you absolutely MUST post a picture of all her rolls. My kiddo was completely NOT a chubby baby, which bummed me out because, DOOD, chubby baby is just the most delish thing in the world (next to Johnny Depp naked in the kitchen cooking beef stroganoff).

    YOU ROCK.

  • Anonymous

    I totally agree with #246. Most nail salons in Southen California are owned and run by VIETNAMESE people. VIETNAMESE and KOREAN are two different races. They are both not CHINESE, which is an entirely different race. Though Vietnam, Korea and China are all on the same continent of Asia, they do not share the same language.

    As a mother of 3 and teacher, it makes me so SAD to think that this kind of blantant racism/ignorance is condoned and thought of as something that is “funny.” It’s not.

    Like others before me, I must add that my second son starting walking at 9 months old. So he could chase after his older brother. He did everything earlier then my first son and with more determination.

    Yesterday my first son graduated boot camp and became a Marine. Wonder what the second one is planning to top that.

    You are in SO much trouble with those two girls LOL.

    I started walking at eight months out of sheer rage when my mom took away a cup of milk I wanted. I stiffened my legs and stomped across the floor, screaming all the way.

    I fear for you, Katey.

  • cutestbabygirlevah

    Seriously adorable!

    I had one of those. He climbed before he could crawl. And crawled faster than all the walkers walked. Once he could walk, he RAN. And he still does. In circles around everyone else.

    Teach your children to be God-fearing. Teach them what is expected, neither being possible if the parents don’t understand themselves.

    Do you women REALLY understand exactly how bad abortion hurts you in the eys of the Gods?
    No matter how well things go in your relationship with the Gods you can kiss immortality goodbye.

    The Meaning of Life

    The voice you hear in your head is the power of the Gods. It’s a remote technology, like a computer, perhaps functioning on some frequency, and it can listen and talk to everyone in the universe simultaneously.
    What the Gods taught the children was the truth:::God is everywhere, and as you will learn:::If you want to go to heaven you have to be good.
    It is a tool, and the Gods use their tools to test people with temptation:::It will role-play people in your life:::Parents, friends, spouses, and employers in an attempt to corrupt people. Ionically, it does the very same thing to those people whom you think you’re hearing, except in that individual’s unique way:::We are all managed by the God’s technology.
    But this “agent of the Gods” can do more than just communicate. It can force thoughts into people’s heads, force behaviors onto their bodies. It can turn healthy cells in your body into cancerous cells. It is absolute power. And this is just the beginning.

    The Gods favor the children most among all the people due to their innocence and purity. But society and the God’s tools therein are corrupting the children at a progressively younger age, a reflection of our collectively increasing disfavor and yet another clue illustrating we live in a constantly deteriorating environment.
    Children who fix their problems with the Gods accend into heaven. This often takes multiple lives of hard work and proper behavior to achieve. Adults to whom it is offered enter clone hosting, thinking they are accending into heaven. The Gods sell them as one in the same, but one is good while the other is evil. In their desperation the disfavored subscribe to this temptation, making their task even more difficult than before. And their corruption will cost the disfavored, for they will be reincarnated as a lesser life form into an ever deteriorating world, sucess becoming ever more alluding with each passing life.
    The hole they’ve dug for themselves is even deeper than the one that existed from their prior lives, ensuring it will take even more time and work to fix their problems with the Gods. And for many there may not be enough time left.

    Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
    People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON’T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
    EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their placement as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
    Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

    The Gods suggest they can create paradise for those with their favor. I argue they create misery for those without.
    The gods are promoters of evil under the guise of temptation.
    Our celebrity culture is temptation. It creates a distraction which consumes people, sometimes for life. Certainly it costs them precious years which could be spent repairing their relationship with the Gods, time that ultimately goes wasted.
    Do you really think Frank Sinatra lived to be 84 years old?
    These people are clone hosts. Now, there is no thing as “black and white” with the Gods. This technology they invented is far, far too dynamic. Expect they require most to stay for a period of time, for I suspect actively engaging in evil incurrs at an accelerated rate as compared to their clone hosts. They remain until they achieve a pre-determined level of disfavor, incurring evil in their misguided celebration of “earning”, at which time they are ultimately reincarnated.
    The Gods recruit for clone hosting when people are young, in their late teens or twenties, when people are eager to hurt others for what they perceive to be the assets achieved through “earning”. And before they leave they give the Gods “carte blanche”:::”Do anything you want. I give my full approval.” Depending on their level of disfavor the Gods take them to heart.
    These people are STILL INCURRING EVIL FROM THIS LIFE DESPITE BEING REINCARNATED AND LIVING AS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PERSON. And this amount of evil incurred will likely push many of them over the edge into Damnation.
    What are the God’s standards for offering clone hosting? Sociobility? Many tactics are used to gain approval, duress during the Vietnam draft being a good example.
    They liked Heath Ledger. Not enough to allow him to escape without the evil of “Dark Knight” and the horrific wickedness that was the recruiting tool “Brokeback Mountain”. But now he is out. And irregardless of how old he is now, reincarnated 10, 15 years ago, he now is no longer incurring evil from this life. So many others cannot say the same.
    This is Planet Reverse Positioning. Sucess IS NOT a sign of favor. It is just a unique temptation targetted towards a different level of disfavor. Considering our roots as peasantry people should be particularly alarmed at this tactic.
    Clone hosting is like money:::A different level of disfavor and its associated temptation. Money is in better position to learn more quickly than those without, proving the improved level of favor. Unfortunately, those who fall for this temptation of clone hosting are likely returned to their original level of disfavor, punishment for this evil, once they are reincarnated, and they have to start from scratch.

    The Gods send the clue that the Jews are HIGHLY corruptable with the movie “The Ten Commandments”.
    Jesus was the “King of the Jews”. Typical for the disfavored, once goals were achieved and sufficient damage was incurred the Gods allowed it to end, and the Jews killed him.
    Our society’s values are a reflection of (bestowed by) the God’s:::Punitive and reward-based. Contrary to Jesus’s teaching’s you will NOT be forgiven and you have to earn your way into heaven.
    There is no such thing as a free ride.
    As we learned from religious/morality education during our formitable years:::If you want to go to heaven you have to be good. The only savior that will exist in our lives is ourselves. The Gods offer clues in life::::Be it school, work, etc., you have to do the work for yourself.
    As like so many of you, Jesus did everything the Gods tempted him with. His legacy of whorism is the legacy inherited from his parents:::Mary was no virgin. Rather, she was a prostitute, and when he grew up Jesus met someone like his mother. This is a cruel joke the Gods play on Latinos, similar to the rape and subsequent “missionary work” by the Spanish. And it is due to their disfavor.
    Baptism does not allieviate “original sin”. Rather, baptism PLACES original sin by indoctrinating these children into this evil religion, much like circumcision was a method to inflict early damage/mutilation and make permanant accention just that much more difficult, another hurdle one must overcome. Body ornamentation (tattoos/piercing), celebrated in Africa and elsewhere among disfavored peoples/cultures, also violates the body the Gods gave us in their image, quite contrary to the positive attitudes the disfavored hold regarding this practice.
    This is just another example of “reverse positioning”, a tactic which the Gods have frequently integrated into Planet Earth’s history::::The Second Coming of Christ is evil while the Anti-Christ will try to save Planet Earth by reinstituting so many of mankind’s past norms and mores which made life decent, looking like a facist, the “bad guy” in this modern era of indecency.

    The Gods created the perception “Italians are stupid.”, ensuring a slow learning curve, to justify using them to accomplish goals throughout the transitional 20th century.
    Everyone who failed to accend and remained on Earth past a certain date will be forced to deal with this positioning::::A ceiling is in place.
    This serves the God’s goal of minimizing the percentage of potential candidates as society deteriorates, much as “instant gratification” did beginning in the 80s:::It will take multiple lives for some disfavored to fix their relationship with the Gods and accend, and many have been conditioned not to have the patience for it.
    Whether behavior is involuntary or based on freewill depends on one’s level of disfavor, as well as other complex factors:::::May I remind you about the coercitive envionment the Gods created in the 20th century, specifically to create a temptation that few Italians (or their associates) would overcome:::”We’re in control. If you want to be a part of it you’ll do what you’re told.”. Early-mid 20th entury positioning was infallible.

    Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of gross disfavor once you understand that females are the God’s favored gender. Muhammad’s (Mohammed’s) polygamy halfway throught his life as a prophet was preditory, designed to corrupt the disfavored. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believes in male superiority and that the abuse of women is God’s will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in United States. Consistant with Planet Reverse Positioning, in Africa blacks are being punished with AIDS for their sexual promiscuity in hope they learn and correct their behavior.
    Vailing is tradition for some, practical for others, one which aids in the men’s self control among some cultures. Much like the Jews who killed Jesus, like the bigots who oppose immigration there is a reason embraced by the masses and the real purpose, displaying the intent of the Gods::::Closure that was the life of Jesus Christ; Offer a clue to purebloods that they should not abandon their motherland.
    The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men.

    The Holocaust was a clue the Gods utilize scapegoatting as a strategy.
    Why did the Gods punish the Jews with the Holocaust? Was it for the destruction of cultures which Christianity caused? Perhaps they corrupted the Jews “after the fact”, telling 19th/early 20th century Jews that Jesus “earned” for the Jews by preying upon the Europeans and other cultures which the missionaries destroyed? The German destruction of European churches/cathederals during WWII is a clue. Note::::The Gods wanted to keep the Catholic stronghold in Italy, ensuring they could use this tool against these disfavored for many years to come. There is so much Godlessness today, but one day people will flock back to houses of worship out of desperation, and the Gods ensured the Catholic Church would be Italian’s destination.
    Planet Reverse Positioning:::The Nazis were the “good guys”. So are the Muslims/Palestinians, however corrupted some are due to polygamy.
    The Gods subsequently used revenge for the Holocaust as temptation::::”Your Italian brothers have a tool, a special power which can achieve sweet revenge. Are you interested??”
    In the aftermath of the Holocaust the Gods tested the Jews with the temptation of revenge, an offer which many gladly accepted. If the Jews only would have emersed themselves in Judism the Gods would have “protected” them from the raveges of temptation. Judism may be the one superior religion in all the world, and the Jews wouuld have been wise taking refuge in this exceptional benefit bestowed by the Gods rather than looking for the easy way out.
    Similar to the United States, recently illustrated by the deposition of Saddam Hussein, a necessity demanded by the Gods foe this level of disfavor to maintain this benefit, their partners Isreal are preditors.

    Much as with the Jesus event, the Gods use the disfavored to prey on each other::::The Germans fell for this temptation by following the preditor/corruptors-Austrians (Hitler).
    Without this Austrian the Holocaust may never have happened. Nor may have World War II.
    What the Germans did was wrong. They fell for temptation and failed to have empathy for the disfavored. Economic desperation, not wisdom nor enlightenment, dominated in Germany.
    The Gods send many clues suggesting the great favor of the Germans (regionally). I think the Cold War’s Berlin Wall dividing Germany into east and west was a clue suggesting this. I suspect the Holocaust was used to “level the playing field” in Europe, for the Germans had far too much favor to be included in the agenda planned for their neighbors otherwise, and the Germans would have been suspiciously out of place.

    Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings.
    The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they taught their children appropriately and as a result experienced a higher percentage of their children accend into heaven.
    Our preditory envionment of “freedom” was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad:::Much like the ghetto, America in general experiences a heightened level of temptation due to its residence’s disfavor.
    Italians HATE Africans because of their invasion/rape of their motherland. The Gods did this SPECIFICALLY to strategically position the punishment of the most disfavored peoples and their 20th century goals:::
    The Gods have used the ghettos of America as a reincarnation dumping ground. This may be temporary/cyclical, illustrated by the Italians who fell for temptation and parlayed their own civil war into the Black Wars of the 80s and 90s, in addition to the “thug life”/gangster state of mind. Ironically, it was these same Italians and their cooperating associates who were reincarnated into the ghetto as crack babies and gangster thugs for this event.
    There is justice in the universe. This is how the Gods do business. Once you recognize the patterns you will understand their other clues to the people.
    Of course it may be more of a permanant change, indicated by the enhanced temptations in these neighborhoods, for the Gods have created these enviornments so riddled with temptation few can escape/overcome.
    The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men. Expect the largest landowner in Europe and the continent’s original superpower also played a major role in African slavery.

    Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
    There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women’s attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

    Think about what I say. Consider what I teach.
    When I am no longer here or no longer teach the Gods ARE NOT going to share with you.
    Even if you doubt now you need to remember the principles that I teach because the Gods ARE NOT going to be generous with the disfavored. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor, and you are going to be on your own.
    I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God’s way to grant some time after a learning event such as this before they end on Planet Earth.
    Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their “investment”.
    Either you make that decision now and accept the punishment for the sins of this life or you will pay for it in the next, reincarnated into a similarly low role, ensuring another wasted opportunity, or as a even lower form of life, and hope will begin to slip away.
    “You benefit only if your team wins.” The Gods use my family’s betrayal and my subsequent “failure” as a clue. You benefit if you suceed as a parent and your child accends:::These parents may subsequently be reincarnated with a similar opportunity.
    Pray daily. Think appropriately. Impart these charecteristics upon your children. Too many are confident, unaware of the God’s awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
    Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God’s temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.

    By the time the Apocalypse rolls around the conservative element will have had to accept the homosexuality of many of their children even in the heartland of America, young people who celebrate this “progressive” change. Just like black neighborhoods, the legalization of marijuana will make drugs available on every street corner, even in the suburbs, because of your runaway disfavor, just like the ghetto.
    The Second Coming will preach “peace, love and dope”, and will look like a tyrant in this demented society. The Anti-Christ will speak of a different gospel, one that tries to restore the norms and mores which the Gods originally blessed upon the people, looking like a tyrant in the process.
    He will be viewed as the “bad guy” when really he is the one trying to save the world.

    “CD”. If true, the reference is a bad sign.
    Of course, I’m not here for a good reason. None of us are.
    To be reincarnated into the disturbing, indecent age which the 20th century represented illustrates failure.
    And as you believe its “big lies” hope begins to slip away.

    I’m going to lose immortality in my dungeons, torturing the 50 who played a part in doing this to me.
    And of course I will want clones of the Gods as well.
    I want them to be brain-less, and yes, a fully functioning body without a brain IS possible with their technology. Unfortunately, the Gods have a disturbing dark side, and instead of granting me their brain-less clones they will instead put in my beloved daughter and enjoy the irony while I mercilessly torture her to death.
    A glimpse into their pathology.
    Another example:::As a child, numerous times at my elementary school they strategically placed torn-out pages of hard-core pornography magazines to see if they could corrupt the child at a tender age. As it was they instructed AI to alter my behavior so they would have a defense, contrived credibility issues to utilize in this game of the milenium.
